Mark Aston, director of Rapid Vans Leasing Limited set up the UKs first internet van sales business called Vans Direct back in 1998. Less than a decade on the business had changed the way vans were sold in the UK selling over 10,000 vans a year across the nation before selling the business. After spending time in internet finance Mark, now joined by his son Sam, launched their new E-Commerce business. The vison is to conduct the majority, if not all, the transactions online. By bringing the customer and the supplying dealer together we can reduce cost cutting out the need for a broker or middle man. We have significantly reduced the cost of sale, passing this saving onto you the customer. We take our margin from the volume of finance supplied and a marketing fee charged to the dealer in relation to sales.
We also know that whatever business you're in, you're very likely to be busy and want to keep things as clear and straightforward as possible. You don't want to be caught out by hidden charges, small print or delays in getting the vehicle. We prefer to sell from stock working with dealers that hold large numbers of vans eager to hit quarterly targets.
Let’s face it, the motor trade don’t make it easy to understand which the best way is to buy a van and tend to make it even harder to work out how much you end up paying. Mark has made it a mission to keep things as simple and as transparent as possible. We promise no hidden charges or admin fees.
But also, the best way of funding it for you and your business.
It is then our absolute mission to give you the best possible deal, you dictate the pace of the sale as its all online the decision to buy or not is yours. When the finance is in place the dealer will contact you to confirm the details and arrange delivery direct to you at a time that suits your business. This is included in the price agreed with no extra charge.
We invest heavily in ensuring the dealers deliver a high-quality level of service consistently. If something does go wrong we will always help to put it right.
